    making .ini files

    If one of your programs needs a .ini file do you just use a text editor or do you have a special editor for this?

    Thanks

    INI files are just text files. You need a text file editor like notepad, or even thinAir.

    Usually your app is storing and reading the values from inside your app. Means, your app is looking for an entry. If not, it uses a default value. When your user is changing settings, you write them back into an INI file.
